Is it necessary to take the camera cover off?
To replace the battery door cover, it looks like the pin will just slide out but gets slightly caught up on the camera cover? Do I need to take the cover off first?
SDR, that is the best way of doing it. It is possible that with extensive wiggling and pushing, it might get accomplished, or it might just break the eye of the case. Remove the case and push the pin out from the LCD side. Hope this helps, good luck.
